Post by NicCo »

On DW:
The OpenMandriva project is a fork of the Mandriva family of Linux distributions. The project's latest release, OpenMandriva Lx 3.02, features a number of package updates, including the Plasma 5.9.5 desktop environment, Wayland 1.12.0, systemd 233 and version 4.11 of the Linux kernel. OpenMandriva's kernel uses the BFQ scheduler for improved desktop performance. The project's release announcement declares: "The distribution ISO is bootable in BIOS or UEFI from USB stick or DVD and uses the Calamares installer to guide you through installation with the minimum of effort. The ISO also offers a means of booting EFI partitions should they become inaccessible because of boot order changes. This distribution has been successfully installed and run on a dual-graphics chip notebook using Bumblebee. A working i586 image is available however this will only install on genuine i686 boxes. If your machine is 64-bit please use the relevant 64-bit image. Main features in this release: KDE - Frameworks 5.33.0, Plasma 5.9.5, Applications 17.04, Qt 5.8.0; display subsystem - X.Org Server 1.19.3, Wayland 1.12.0, Mesa 17.1.1; core - Linux kernel 4.11.3 (with BFQ as default I/O scheduler and UKSM enabled), systemd 233, LLVM/Clang 4.0.1, GCC 6.3.1, glibc 2.25...." Additional information and updated package versions can be found in the release notes. Download (MD5): OpenMandrivaLx.3.02-PLASMA.x86_64.iso (2,050MB, torrent, pkglist).
